    1880 Wailuku Plantation Token, AU55
    1 Real, Medcalf 2TE-6
    Superior Strike

    1880 TOKEN Wailuku Plantation Token, 1 Real, AU55 PCGS. Medcalf 2TE-6. A splendid chocolate-brown representative. The strike is far above average for this usually mushy variety, and as close to full as can be obtained. The surfaces are pleasing and exhibit only incidental contact. PCGS has certified a total of only 12 examples of this rare Hawaiian token. The Wailuku Plantation was an early cane sugar farm controlled by American businessmen. One real, a Mexican silver denomination, was equivalent to 12 1/2 U.S. cents. Listed on page 414 of the 2015 Guide Book. Population: 3 in 55, 0 finer (12/14). (NGC ID# 2UBN, PCGS# 600512)
